Alternatives to Tamron 150-600
4 months ago

I've been hoping to get the Tamron 150-600 for an upcoming trip to Africa, but it's looking like it may not be available before I leave (early August). It looks to me like the two main alternatives are the Sigma 150-500 f/4.5-6.3 OS and the Tamron 200-500 f/5-6.6. I suppose the Sigma 50-500 is an option as well.

From reviews, it seems that the Tamron 200-500 has somewhat better optical quality thatn the Sigma, but the lack of OS may somewhat balance that. Thoughts? I'm also wondering about resale value, as I would likely not plan to keep the lens after this trip.

Thanks!
